This blog is intended to be a refreshing and often sideways look at the contemporary field of antiques and collectables by Edd Thomas, owner of eddintheclouds antiques (www.eddintheclouds.com) based here in the UK.
With a background in education and a life long dedication to history, I remain fascinated with the objects and stories of our past and the way we choose to interact with them today to satisfy our own contemporary needs. While objects appear to have a very pre-defined story of their own, infact they are reinterpreted and ‘rediscovered’ constantly to complement our ever changing fashions, interests and beliefs.
This blog, intended for educational purposes only, represents some of my own views only about the ever changing world of our material past. I am grateful to appear regularly in other online and printed magazines and these are cited at the top of the post where relevant.
